177th Fighter Wing Part of NJ Flyover for First Responders May 12th
While most of South Jersey didn't get to see the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels the other day, we will be treated to our own special fly-over on May 12th.
Next Tuesday, May 12th, (or Wednesday if the weather doesn't cooperate), our neighbors of the 177th Fighter Wing, based at Atlantic City International Airport, and 108th Wing, stationed at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, of the New Jersey Air National Guard are partnering in a nationwide Air Force Salutes Flyover event to honor those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a Facebook post, the flyover will feature three F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 177th and a KC-135R Stratotanker from the 108th.
